so after the mtv ema’s, i snuck into a 21+ afterparty hosted by snoop dogg in an amsterdam nightclub, right? well. i made it to the front of the crowd. i was this close to snoop dogg. he passed me a joint. it was amazing.
then i decided it wasn’t enough. you see, snoop was on this platform seperated from the rest of the club. on this platform was a lot of leather couches and hot people with drinks. so i went to the side of the club and pretended my friend was on the platform. the giant 7 feet tall guard miraculously let me through and i was in the vip section with snoop dogg
i was literally the only one there who wasn’t on the guest list. i had some boy pour me drinks (which turned out to be PURE VODKA) and it took me an hour of socializing with strippers and models to figure out that everyone’s alcohol WAS ON TABS and that since i wasnt on the vip list I DIDN’T HAVE A TAB
i left and then i realized i stole snoop dogg’s alcohol
this has been my story
I am so proud of you

Advertising is based on one thing: happiness. And do you know what happiness is? Happiness is the smell of a new car. It’s freedom from fear. It’s the billboard on the side of a road that screams with reassurance that whatever you’re doing is okay. You are okay. -- Donald Draper, Mad Men
I’ve put together this collection of recent sexist advertisements from different companies. To be honest, it was difficult to pick the ones I wanted because there were so many of them. It was truly abhorrent.
Donald Draper explains to us what advertising is. Its a stroking of the ego. Sexism and patriarchy are rampant within society (advertising also touches on things like race, body size, and social class but for the purposes of this post I am focusing on those two), and thus advertising capitalizes on that, makes money on it, and perpetuates it. We’re surrounded by this kind of advertising. We can’t escape it, we’re trapped.
So when shopping or flipping through a magazine, or even driving down the high way and reading billboards, let’s all remember to put our critical thinking hats on and to identify and call out the sexism. Advertising is a significant contributor to the continued social injustices. But remember: those problems come to an end with us. If we stop responding to these advertisements the way the companies want us to, then some real reform can begin.
Is how it feels to have depression.
Or an eating disorder.
Or when you’re dealing with self harm.

I think that if voldemort really wanted to kill harry potter the night the spell didn’t work on him he could’ve just picked him up and thrown him out a window given the fact that he was a one year old infant
